Frustrating: the constant feeling that there is more work to do and more obstacles thrown in our path everyday.
Rewarding: the chance to work with people you trust and respect on a product that has a real and positive impact on people's lives.

Uncertainty and ambiguity will always be there
Stay focused on your top priorities
